Japanese Vegetarian Curry

This was curry #2 for potluck, and was a hit among vegetarians and meat eaters alike. I used this chicken curry recipe as a building block, subbing in vegetables (including new-to-me-for-cooking ones like burdock and lotus root) for the protein.

Recipe Adaptation: Brussels Sprouts with Pepitas

Here was another Thanksgiving side we had. I adapted this lima beans recipe. First, I roasted the sprouts (halved) on high heat for about 40 minutes (in hindsight I would have done this for a bit less time, since they got a little burn-y), and then subbed the sprouts for the lima beans. Decent, but I wasn’t over the moon about it (I think because of the overcooked sprouts).

Pistachio Cheese Ball

This was one of our appetizers for Thanksgiving. Lots of flavor to it. My sister ended up making it using the recipe I found and she did a great job.

Candied Japanese Sweet Potatoes

I tried this out as a potential Thanskgiving recipe. I don’t think it’s happening for this, but these were interesting. It was my first time using Japanese sweet potatoes (found at the farmers market) which were a little starchier than I expected.

Miso Slaw

Recipe from CL that makes a TON. I’d recommend only dressing half to keep leftovers fresh. We had this with the quick ponzu salmon I’ve been doing lately (recipe to follow).

Japanese Pickles

My sister got us a Japanese pickling class for my birthday. It was so fun! We made three different types of pickles in the class, and I’m listing all of these recipes here.

Lima Beans with Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

They had fresh lima beans at the market this week, and I stumbled on this recipe by chance. It worked out particularly well because I had just made something else with pumpkin seeds and had them on hand. I may try to adapt this to other vegetables (particularly thinking brussels sprouts would be a fun Thanksgiving side).
